Pressure Sensitive Adhesives

Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSA) continue to expand their applications in packaging, converting, assembly, bookbinding, nonwovens, foot wear, automotive and many other markets. Infrared (IR) and Near Infrared (NIR) transmitters offer economical tools to improve Quality Control and Assurance while increasing Production Opportunity with improved Process Control.

Near Infrared Transmitters can measure wet end water based coatings, dry end organic depositions, pre-treatments and hot melt adhesive thickness.  Roll, Doctor Blades, Air Knifes, Die Bolts and other coaters benefit from these measurements.  These NIR transmitters can also measure moisture at the dryer exit and after re-moisturizing unit operations to reduce lay flat and edge curl.  Mounting these transmitters on a scanning frame equipped with a position encoder, the web profile can be mapped on a PC to assist in maintaining a uniform profile across the web.

Infrared Pyrometers and Thermal Imaging Systems allow for temperature measurements to be incorporated into the control scheme and detection of hot spots in the manufacturing process.  Pyrometers can be mounted at the exit of the dryer or internally for specific zone measurement.  Thermal Imagers can identify cold and hot spots across the product to identify problems in unit operations that can then be corrected.  Together NIR and IR tools greatly assist the development of consistent and uniform manufacturing while reducing the cost of manufacturing in-specification product.

Guy Fawkes – Bonfire Night in the UK!

November 5th is celebrated with Bonfires, Guy Fawkes masks and music throughout the UK.  Generally folks appreciate the revelry and often overlook the story.  Guy Fawkes tried to kill  King James and Blow Up Parliment back in 1605 over religious persecution.  Click Here to Read More.     V is for Vendetta is a very interesting movie taking place in the future that makes use of the now famous Guy Fawkes mask and story.  Below is an excerpt from the movie in which Hugo Weaving as V delivers a stirring speech!

 

Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot…

“Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant and vanished.”

“However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.”
